Title: His Foxy Lady
Series: Shifters of Sanctuary #2
Author: Kasey Belle
Published: June 19, 2018
My Rating: 4.5 stars
It was so easy to slip back into the world of the Shifters of Sanctuary for the second story, His Foxy Lady. The beginning of this story will rip your heart out… it’s just that simple and complex. The rest of the story will mend it, bring happiness and stability to three very deserving people. It is so easy to fall for little Casey. That little girl is gonna be an expert sassy lady one day, I adored her and her almost snark comments. And man, can that girl talk. *grin*
Nikki has come to Sanctuary to work, and to find her own peace. Her time in war has left its scars and now Nikki and her Fox need the quiet, steady atmosphere of Sanctuary, as well as the work she’s committed to. She’s also got one eye out for danger from Casey’s biological father who should be in prison right now… but Nikki has a bad feeling about him. Jim is a former bull rider who left that career after a very brutal final ride that left damage behind. He’s content on Sanctuary working with good people doing great things for the wounded and abandoned animals they care for. Jim is human and has no idea of shifters or mates… that’s about to change.
His Foxy Lady will grab your attention, your emotions, and your sense of humor – all combine into one story that will keep your focus right to the end. We’ll catch up with old friends from the first story in this series, maybe learn a bit more about others. Nikki and Jim fit so well together, funny, sexy, and comforting at exactly the moments that Nikki needs him. I’m definitely looking forward to getting updates on this couple as the series continues. I loved this one, and if you love a good Shifter Romance with likable, believable characters, some issues to be dealt with and seeing a villain get what’s commingling to him… then you ‘ll love not only His Foxy Lady but Shifters of Sanctuary as well.
